Still shocking after 30 years... this definitive blast of teenage nihilism is strong medicine indeed.

Heathers really is odd, like a mix of something by Stephen King and Bret Easton Ellis...

August 31, 2010
Heathers locates the emotional totalitarianism lurking in a prom queen's heart.
August 31, 2010
A super-smart black comedy about high school politics and teenage suicide that showcases a host of promising young talents.
July 15, 2008
Two decades later, Heathers is so on the money, with its vague but unmistakable parallels to several school shootings, that it could never be made today.

...an erratically-paced yet ultimately rewarding endeavor...

Even bigger, brasher, brighter and more vicious than the decade it satirises, though sadly "Heathers" failed to make Very happen. It's a blunt satire, though still effective, still coruscatingly funny - and scarily prescient.
October 31, 2018
A pointless satire on high school coeds acting bitchy and hanging out in cliques.
October 30, 2018
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, what's so striking about the incisive and Machiavellian comedy is how fresh it feels.

This nails the '80s high-school experience, then blows it up for good measure. More fun than a game of strip croquet. Now that's deep.

Mostly this is gleeful nastiness crafted with jagged irony and with a captivating performance by Winona Ryder at its centre.

If there's a weakness of motivation in Heathers, it may be because the whole film is rather dream-like, a product of Veronica's fevered writing and imaginings, with a consequent chaos and interchangeability of roles.

'Heathers' still pulses with the visceral thrill of getting away with something - both on- and off-screen.
January 2, 2011
After Columbine, this dark comedy isn't as funny.
July 22, 2010
Heathers, with all its flagrant masochism and violence, is a throwback to a more innocent time, where such films could be made and still be deemed over the top fantasy.
August 11, 2008
With its unapologetic bleakness and ferocious sense of humor, it is a film that is as smart as it is entertaining, and it keeps us laughing against our better judgment.
August 11, 2008
... the film paints high school as a veritable hell where the only way to alleviate suffering is by making others suffer more.
July 1, 2008
So grab your croquet mallet, load up on "Ich luge" bullets, and crank up the Big Fun: Heathers is a motion picture that continues to impress and disturb, even 20 years after release.
July 18, 2007
Dark, cynical, but deliciously funny, Heathersis a fascinating look not just at high school but at the way we look at high school.
